"Religion and Christianity are two different belief systems."
(if this was your statement, feel free to claim it.)
Especially among the pentecostal and fundamentalist communities.
How/why can you believe this to be true?

Whenever I see/hear someone say Christianity isn't a religion, all I can do is scratch my head.They say it is a relationship not a religion, but all you have to do is look the word up in the dictionary to see the way most Christians go about obtaining that "relationship" definitely qualifies as a religion

Alot of Christians tell me its not about religion (set rules) its about a relationship/spirituality with god maybe she meant that? But still i feel if you call yourself a christian your following that religion. The way i take the comment is her trying to separate christianity from being religious which it is not. So i can not see this as true. You be me more spiritual about your religion but it doesnt mean its not a religion.
